Started as a hobby now it's a passion. Tearing down and up electronics just makes me forget about everything and I love technology and electronics.
Réponse à : « How much is the battery life reduced by increasing RAM? »True, but different components drain different amounts of power from the battery. Memory is a negligible factor, because it uses very little power (we're talking less than 3 watts per stick in a laptop). And in fact, if you have a HDD, more memory usage would theoretically increase battery performance, because there is less HDD activity when memory is used as cache, instead. The most power hungry components are ones that generate heat (CPU and GPU as they process information) and those that generate physical motion (the fans and any hard drives). Memory tends to generate relatively little heat (and obviously no physical motion). The first steps I would take in increasing battery consumption would be to replace the HDD with an SSD, get a new battery and maybe replace the fans with those of better quality (harder to do on a laptop). Also abstain from any GPU or CPU intensive tasks. Any efforts beyond that are adding immeasurably small amounts of battery life.
Réponse à : « Why is my laptop saying BOOTMGR »Hi there, Turning on your PC, only to be greeted with the words BOOTMGR is missing, is a panic-inducing experience. The BOOTMGR is a program that runs when you start your PC, and loads your operating system from the hard drive. When it is missing, Windows is unable to boot.
